Despite the drop in temperature at the end of January and the beginning of February, the golfers at the local club kept turning out in impressive numbers with the incentive of qualifying for the final of the popular Winter League.
In qualifying Winter League 5 left handed Kevin Lewis led the way with an excellent 41 points. Adrian Davies had 39 points with Clive Davies 38 points holding off Club Captain Clive Williams, also 38 points with a better back nine.
In Winter League 6 the top four players all had 40 points, Eugene Evans leading from Graham Tapp, David Blair and Terry Richards. And finally in Winter League 7 Clive Davies dominated proceedings with 46 points. He comfortably beat Justin Quin 40 points who held off Kevin Lewis also 40 points on the back three. Arwyn Morris was fourth with 39 points.
On the second Wednesday of February the weekly Wednesday cut throat held their annual dinner during which Brian Blair announced the winner of the Cut Throat Shield as Harvinder Singh with five wins during the year beating the holder of the shield Geraint Evans who also had 5 wins but Harvey had a greater number of second places during the year.
The Cut Throat on the day was won by Tom Thomas with 43 points and following an excellent meal the 25 members enjoyed a traditional evening at the nineteenth hole.
